Hi guys,I was wondering if people on this forum are also
rabid gear heads as I'am.As most of you know by now I'm
critical to a fault when it comes to pay to be entertained.
Before a note is played I scope what effects pkgs. agiven band might use.Now the story,my very first day on the puter I googled for the hell of it, the Deads WOS system and was astonished at the wealth of info there was, at least 10 pages and assorted links. As I'm absorbing the info and the technical stuff the question then was, what happened to 89 MAC-2300amps and assorted gear.I called Macintosh in Binghamton and was refered to Chuck Hinton their tech/historian. He then tells me the story and then he says there's alot people who just like me need to know where, what and how many
and there are web sites that do just that. Viola Dozin, I
infoed the gear side then I came across THE SET LIST.I had no idea such a public archive of music devtoted to the Dead exsisted. Of course I knew of the Vault but that is a commercial concern, I'm not a taper or trader so what I own is nothing compared to what just opened up to me. This changed my way of listening to music to the extent that I went back old school to 2- channel stereo. For those who care my new/old humble system is an ADCOMgfa555
200wpc amp- OnkyoP-103pre-Infinity sm112s-Denon1910 cdp.
The quality of HDCDs deserves the best that you could afford.My only wish now is owning a Mac2105 C-28 pre and a
pair of Klipsch Hereseys, dream on dream on lw dream on.To end this missive for those who don't know what happened to all that gear as told to me,some were used for instruments,some for the pared down sound system,some given to roadies and crew and then some sold back to Audio Classics in upstate N. Y.I'm learning everyday and to say it's mindblowing would of course be the understatement of all time.

I did,and I don't see the connection. Also his computer speak is way over my head, and have Absolutely no idea
what he's talking about.Looking at his history as I did he's all over the place.I on the other hand told you 2or3
little stories I thought might interest some people.

i'm not much of a gearhead except in theory. broke as a joke just out of university. still, these guys at are passionately searching for the sound. there is a wealth of information on everything from picks and cables and strings to guitars, pickups, guitars, effects, speakers, preamps, poweramps. there's also lots of discussion on technique, theory, licks for songs and chords. great site for chords for every GD song as well, and the covers.
